Step into Gemma’s World and see the challenges faced by children living in poverty.

Gemma's World

We’ve created an online game that shows you the reality of life for young people from families that are really struggling. 

We know about the issues faced by some of the country’s most deprived children and young people through our ongoing project work. They tell us that they are acutely aware of the impact receiving of free school meals have on their family’s finances.

Unfortunately, there are 3.6 million children, like Gemma, living in poverty in the UK, yet 1.2 million of them are not receiving free school meals.

You can help make their world better by telling your MP to help ensure all children in poverty receive a free school meal.
